In November of 2019 my mom, Barbara, began    having severe abdominal pain. A visit to the           emergency room revealed that she definitely had something going on. Thus began our journey         starting with her primary doctor, Dr. Harmon, who is awesome. He provided her with excellent care and her referral to Dr Thacker at Barnes Jewish Hospital.  After weeks of testing and waiting and CT scans and more waiting, we found out that she has stage 3 ovarian cancer and cancer of the omentum which is part of a woman's stomach. The course of action began with 9 weeks of chemotherapy and here we are at the second stage which is her surgery.
